Inspection was completed in a timely and efficient manner. Rick took the time to discuss any items of interest or concerns with my clients and their opinion of him was high.
Pricing is reasonable and scheduling was easy due to the support of the office staff.
Everyone involved was professional and courteous. A trait sorely needed in today’s business practices and very much appreciated. I have already begun referring your services to other clients.
Rick is easily my #1 favorite inspector to recommend. He has an unbeatable combination of skill and chill. (Great tag line, too, huh?! SKILL 'n CHILL. You should trademark it).
Skill - he knows what the heck he's doing, and does not gloss over flaws.
Chill - he's calm as an individual anyway, and he does not create UN-NECESSARY anxiety with home buyers.
Too many inspectors have only 1 of these 2 qualities (or, worse, neither). Some are "chill" and also sloppy and "miss" flaws". Some have "skill" and unnecessarily SPOOK buyers.
Rick has an awesome combination of both.

Many of my buyer clients, and some seller clients have had Highland Home Inspections and Rick Belliveau conduct inspections on their future and/or present homes. They have been exceedingly pleased with the thoroughness of the inspections and the follow-up report.
As a real estate practitioner, I continue to be pleased with the thoroughness of the physical inspection that Rick does and the written description of the condition of the report. Rick always takes time to explains the workings of the particular property which helps the client understand the property. Thank you, Rick and Highland Home Inspection for a thorough inspection and attention to the questions and concerns of my clients.
I first contacted Highland Home Inspections because, the owner Richard Belliveau, taught a continuing education course on home construction, and I was impressed by his in-depth knowledge and his background in engineering. They do a great job on identifying potential problems but also have solutions. I have used Highland Home Inspections for years and have been happy with their service and approach. I highly recommend them!
